The least exposed in the field after six starts but he hasn't made an impact in handicaps this year and looked a non-stayer over this trip here on his penultimate start.

Last season petered out tamely after making most in an amateur riders' race at Sandown (1m2f, good to soft) in August when 2lb higher; not without hope if all the better for a break but it's easy to have doubts.

Form & Verdict

Won four times at up to 1m4f when trained in France; no impact in three 1m handicaps for new yard but his mark has dropped 8lb; has a similar profile to the yard's Warning Sign, another French recruit who was backed before going close in an amateur riders' event at Newbury under David Dunsdon a fortnight ago; one to keep a close eye on in the betting now stepping back up in trip after an 11-week break.

Form & Verdict

Won this race on good to firm last year and made the perfect start to this season at Windsor (1m2f, soft) in May; hasn't reproduced that form since but he was a bit better than the result back at Windsor last time and he's dropped back to that last winning mark.

His Flat wins have come over 1m/8.6f; hasn't been operating at his best this year but his mark reflects that and he was beaten only half a length into third in a similar contest at Newbury at (1m2f, soft) under Brodie Hampson a fortnight ago.

Won off 5lb higher at Pontefract (1m2f, good to firm) last summer and signs he might be ready to capitalise on his reduced mark when runner-up back at Pontefract (1m2f, good to soft) 11 days ago; can look a bit awkward under pressure but he's too well handicapped to ignore.

Signs of a revival when runner-up at Pontefract in July but below that level again since and a tendency to race freely is always a concern at Newmarket.

Value for more than his narrow winning margin at Chelmsford (1m2f, AW) on seasonal debut, having done well considering he pulled hard and met traffic issues; has plenty of 1m4f form and may remain competitive back up just 1lb.

Form & Verdict

Has struggled to get seriously competitive this year but his mark is edging down and he was beaten under 2l when seventh of nine in a Racing League handicap at Yarmouth (1m, good to soft) a fortnight ago; has first-time cheekpieces combined with his tongue-tie now after racing too keenly in blinkers last time; can't be dismissed but isn't obviously crying out for 1m2f.

Has improved for the fitting of a hood, just getting the better of a subsequent winner over C&D in February and finishing third off this mark at Lingfield (1m4f, Polytrack) and Doncaster (1m2f, soft; first-time tongue-tie); high on the list.

Heavy-ground winner as 2yo; didn't have a great 3yo season but he took advantage of weights drop when winning at Chelmsford last month (1m2f) in a first-time hood; fair third over 1m4f since but perhaps the return to 1m2f back on turf will suit with refitted tongue-tie added.
